With presidential candidates denying global warming is man-made, the drought in California, bees dying, and air pollution, we decided to check Quant Ratings for companies to buy in the environmental and facilities services, companies that deal with the effects humans have on their immediate environment. Regardless of who believes global warming is man-made or what is causing California's drought, humans have an impact on the environment every day, and here are three companies that deal with these issues (and profit from them). Number 3 is Republic Services. With an 'A-' rating, the company's strengths can be seen in its revenue growth and expanding profit margins. 2nd is, ABM Industries Incorporated. This rating is an 'A.' ABM Industries thrives in its solid stock price performance and compelling growth in net income. Number 1 is Waste Connections. With an 'A' rating the company flourishes in its revenue growth and increase in net income. TheStreet Ratings are algorithmic stock picks based on 32 major data points. S&P 500 stocks rated 'buy' yielded a 16-and-a-half-percent return in 2014, beating the S&P 500 Total Return Index by more than 300 basis points.
